I have read five installments and none in sequence. Think Grippando will be on my list to read more of.

Afraid of the Dark

I love James Grippando. It wasn’t as tight as I would have liked to see, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying it. Theo brings humor into the books but he is also jsmes loyal friend. South Florida of course is a huge part of that refrain. This review was first posted at Inside the mind of a Bibliophile As she lay dying in his arms, she utters the name of her boyfriend, Jamal, when asked “Who did this to you? I will definitely be looking out for other books in the series.

This story is not for the faint of heart as it includes terrorist acts, revenge, torture, brainwashing, extreme rendition and other ugly acts. Series hero Jack finds himself at Gitmo, defending Prisoner Numberwho turns out to be the very same Jamal, who, interestingly enough, turns out to have a seemingly rock-solid alibi covering the time he was supposed to be murdering McKenna and blinding Vince: At first I thought “oh no, another terrorist attack book” but it really was so much more.


I hadn’t really thought that people could do some of the things that are done in this book. Somewhat confusing in parts, but read it quickly as it grabbed me. Publishes April 1st — Recv’d Arc from Publisher in lieu of honest review of book.

Afraid Of The Dark

Anyway, I had immense sympathy for Vince and Chuck the father of atraid victimand didn’t really get what Jack was doing. The only way this book makes sense is if women are just stupid. It’s still fun and exciting. You have your stabbed teen-aged girl and your blind cop who’s trying to find her killer.

Sergeant Vince Paulo held his best friend’s daughter, McKenna, bleeding in his arms as she uttered the name of her murderer and ex-boyfriend, Jamal. And then there’s the defense attorney with the client who’s a terrorist – oh whoops, he’s not – he’s, he’s the guy who murdered the girl.

So no mystery, no bothersome unanswered questions about motivation, but also no Jamal. Open Preview See a Problem?

AFRAID OF THE DARK by James Grippando | Kirkus Reviews

Jun 09, Scottsdale Public Library added it Shelves: The New York Times bestselling author’s ever-popular hero, Jack Swyteck, is on his most drak case yet, uncovering a sinister underground world that has him racing across the globe. My favorite parts of the book as always are the scenes with Jack and Theo. Great characters, clever narrative, a complicated and exciting story, wonderful writing and perfect narration make this another home run for Grippando.


The mystery and suspense is high. Jack’s fiancee, Agent Andie Hennings, is a critical piece of this novel and I look forward to the next stage of their romance in book Berlin suspected that the assassins were aided by two families in Lidice, and the punishment was prescribed by Adolf Hitler himself. I liked that, but it made a few of them hard faraid love.

Grippando writes some of the best suspense that you can get your hands on.

Hardcoverpages. I can’t say that I ever read one that was bad. Jan 01, Una Tiers rated it it was ok. Other books in the series. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Yes, this is a series afraiv it can stand alone I love James Grippando.

There are not many books that I would want to re-read but anything by this author will be a book to go back to because you will enjoy it even more the second time around. Knowing the characters stories and histories is always interesting but definitely not necessary to enjoy this novel.
